WATCH: Mitt Romney Avoids Multiple Questions On FEMA

At a campaign rally turned hurricane relief drive in Kettering, OH, Mitt Romney avoided, according to reporters, 14 questions about the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In the past, he’s suggested shuttering in the past in addition to sending responsibility for disaster relief “back to the private sector.” Romney also said it would be “immoral” for the federal government to fund disaster relief efforts without cutting the budget elsewhere.

    He represents the same people who were infuriated at how the world shamed them because of their orders FEMA during hurricane Katrina. They were content to let poor people suffer, like always.

    This is Romney too the core, a horrible corpo-religionist with nothing redeemable or likeable behind the slick veneer.


    what a gutless dissembler.

    If Mr. Flip flop Romney were the President(hope not) he would sell Fema to Bain, then they would sell it back to the states for a hefty profit!

    @jerry_pritikin: If it were really Bain then they’d get it for nothing, outsource it off to China and then promise new American jobs and then sell it off completely to China as a giant up yours to his own voters.

    Like he’s done with everything else.

    Why SHOULD he answer any questions?

    He refused to turn over any older tax returns outside the last two…which were done WHILE he was running for president. Even his own FATHER who turned over 12 years said that only turning over a few years wouldn’t work because it was too easy to hide things.

    He refuses to answer questions about when his time at Bain ended.

    He refused to answer questions about the 22% failure rate of companies Bain invested in during his tenure, compared with the 8% failure rate of alternative energy companies that the Federal govt. gave grants to.

    And yet the press just stopped asking and those issues went away.

    So why should Romney bother answering anything? If he stays quiet the press lets him get away with it.

    Mit wants to privatize FEMA. So only those who can pay will get help. My god! My grandparents couldn’t afford to fix their house if they lived in the middle of this. Do you really want someone who is a horse trader, like Bushes’s Michael Brown, to be responsible if you’re going to be able to rebuild your home or not? Do you really want Mit to put someone like Bushes’ Brown again to run FEMA? As Bush said to Mr Brown: Mit “you’re doing a fine job there.” Just because we are gay does not mean we have to bend over and take it. If Mit wins it will be with out lube.
